Ideation

. In this stage we offer consultation and understand what the client's product main function or purpose is. We gather inspirational samples and/or rough drawings from the client and piece them all together with problem solving skills and knowledge in the industry. We then provide detailed CAD sketches with different views and options for the client to narrow down the end result. Providing this step first eliminates a lot of time, money and guess work when getting to the next step: pattern making.

Pattern-Making

In this stage a digital pattern is created that can be delivered in hard copy or many different digital formats. We offer grading (making different sizes) as well in men's, women's & children's clothing. We can deliver that pattern to the client or move on to the next step of sample making.

Materials

We source fabrics and trims from a wide variety of wholesale sources. Fabrics can be sourced from stock programs, made-to-order or specially developed custom fabrics. Taking direction from our clients and making suggestions for the best raw materials available, we present a selection of swatches to choose from. Once a material is selected, we help order sample yardage as well as mass goods for production.

Sample-Making

We provide prototype making and sample making for fit testing, market testing and salesmen samples. We also offer 3D prototyping as a first step. Test your product look and fit before ever going to cut and sew.
